Amy’s friend Kat (not “Therapy Kat” but “Cryo Kat”) joins us to chat with Amy about SO MANY THINGS: cryotherapy + alternatives to New Year's Resolutions (like picking a word of the year & other ideas) + staying in joy with gratitude + stimulating the vagus nerve + social media breaks + angel tree shopping + sharing 4 things gratitude (FYI: NEW JOURNALS NOW AVAILABLE with 100% proceeds going to education in Haiti - linked below!) 
 
Amy’s word of the year for 2023 might be vagus…for the vagus nerve. Because she wants to find all the ways to stimulate it. Benefits of stimulating your vagus nerve:
 
- Helps with depression.
- Regulate your emotions.
- Reduce blood pressure.
- Lower your heart rate.
- Reduce inflammation.
- Help with headaches.
 
Cryotherapy is a way to stimulate the vagus nerve, reducing anxiety and fatigue. Other ways to stimulate vagus nerve since cryotherapy is NOT an option for everyone:
 
- Breath work
- A cold shower or bath, or even splashing cold water on your face
- Getting direct sunlight 
- Singing, Humming, Chanting and Gargling
- Probiotics
- Meditation
- Omega-3 Fatty Acids
- Exercise
- Massage
